A pioneer in today’s freelance revolution, Elance provides an online workplace that allows businesses and independent professionals to find each other and work together via the Internet.

Innovative global enterprises, small businesses and startups tap into the Elance talent pool, building teams from software engineers, application developers and web and graphic designers to copywriters, market researchers, data scientists, social media marketers, customer service agents and other business professionals.

In 2014, the new company Elance-oDesk was launched when Elance merged with oDesk.

In doing so, the company is reimagining work by freeing people to collaborate via the Internet.
